Today’s episode is fairly controversial as it deals with a very polarizing topic: Politics. How can the Church heal the negativity of the election season? Listen as Thom and Sam Rainer discuss five ways to tackle this very practical issue. 

  • Listen first. Talk little. 
  • Do not endorse individual candidates from the pulpit.
  • Guide your church in corporate prayer for our nation.
  • Speak directly into clear biblical issues. 
  • Encourage on social media rather than debating.
